So I'll start with the positives - that's the staff I work with, being a manager they've always been a pleasure to work with and have some of the hardest guys I've ever worked with me.
Unfortunately the company doesn't reward the staff enough, the company boasts "greats rate of pay" on job advertisements yet most staff are NMW. I don't consider that great. I am a shift manager at the moment working 48 hours a week - normally more - which usually works out to not a very good rate of pay. There is bonus' pay but these are given on unrealistic targets set by the company.
I've worked in bar work for many years now and working until late was never something that bothered me until I worked at JDW as my current management often decides that me and half my staff can work on a close then be in as early as 7am the next morning, when brought this up to area managers nothing was followed upon.
For a part time position whilst at uni, I'm sure it can work well. As a career, definitely not a company I could recommend.
Long shifts, back to back shifts, poor pay
